The Tennessee Academy of Ophthalmology (TNAO) is a state association for ophthalmologists (eye
physicians and surgeons). Ophthalmologists are medical and osteopathic physicians who provide
comprehensive eye care, including medical, surgical and optical care. Ophthalmologists have completed medical school, an internship and completed three years of residency; and many, if not most, go on to do a specialized one to two year fellowship. By the time an ophthalmologist has finished training, he or she has over 17,000 hours of experience.
The mission of the Tennessee Academy of
Ophthalmology (TNAO) is to advocate for the best possible eye health care for
Tennesseans, serve the professional needs of ophthalmologists through
legislative advocacy and member services, and assure the publicâ€™s direct
access to medical doctors trained in ophthalmology.
